Inspired Blueprints | Sketch 118

Welcome to another sketch release here at Inspired Blueprints! Sometimes when I'm creating a sketch, I wonder what it will look like once the design team starts creating their layouts. Will it be difficult to interpret? Will it be popular? This is one of those sketches. A lot of scrappers now use instagram (myself included) to record their daily life, so this sketch was born out of the need to use square photos. Inspired Blueprints sketches are always drawn to scale, so you know your photos are going to fit on the page! Check out the inspiring layouts created by the design team this week...
Layout by Alina Bartan
"I kept the photos in their place but instead of using journaling strips I added different kinds and sizes of patterned paper. The title is a little bit smaller than intended and it's written "Best places to see". I used some gesso underneath for more texture."
Layout by Cassie Wiscarson
"I added patterned paper. I also move the embellishments and photos around to work with my layers."
Layout by Fiona Johnstone
"I've added some extra patterned paper where the centre washi strip is and highlighted one of my photos with a frame, condensing the journaling to under the lower photo."
Layout by Leigh Penner
"I stuck very closely to the sketch, but I changed up the sizes of my photos slightly and added a large embellishment in the centre instead of the suggested journaling."
Layout by Linda Zanotto
"I did my LO as a smash double page using half size photos and stamping for the journaling. Also placed the title over the two pages. Other than that I have stayed true to the sketch."
Layout by Marlyn Ramirez
"I've stayed true to the sketch but instead of using multiple lines of journaling, I only used one line."
Layout by Naomi Isobe
"I chose the paper leaves of strawberry prominently. I've cut the photos into 3.5 in. × 3.5 in. photos, I like to make more white space."
Layout by Norine Borys
"Here's my layout for this sketch. I see that ReneeMaree and myself both went with the label makers labels for our journaling strips! I kept my layout pretty close to the sketch, but instead of running a vertical strip along the right half as the sketch shows, I subbed in another piece of paper. It was my original intent to use the whole sheet of patterned paper, but it proved to be too overbearing. This seemed like an acceptable compromise."
Layout by Renee Miller
"Here is my take on this sketch. This is a great sketch to use with your instagram pics!! I added some pattern paper behind the photos to add some fun!! The embellishments were a challenge but you cant go past washi to add fun and contrast!!"
Layout by Rikki Graziani
"I've stayed true to the sketch. Instead of 3 photos I have done 2 and added a large layered tag that we actually did on the day at Make Stuff Pretty Downunder. You cant go past a bit of Colour shine and some resist papers."
Layout by Sarah Wilkins
"I've created a Christmas page to show the love Sam had on Christmas morning for 'Olaf' the snowman, I have used lots of bling and stickles - I'm secretly a magpie - I love sparkle!!"
Layout by Steffanie Seiler
"I enlarged the photo spaces, making the two larger photos 4x5.5 each and then divided the third space into two photos, measuring 4x2.75. I moved the journaling to a tag that is tucked behind the lower photo. This was partly out of necessity since by enlarging my photos I now had less journaling space! I also used the large white space above the sketch title to create a longer, larger title. And let me just say, I loved this sketch!"
Here's sketch 118 again!
